London’s first eco-market reveals trio of latest F&B signings

Latest traders include celebrity chef, Miguel Barclay’s first bricks and mortar site for a New York style pizza concept; seasonally and sustainably-focused concept restaurant Wildflower; and technology-driven coffee house, Glass Coffee.

LabTech, owner of Camden Market, has announced a trio of new operators will join its eco-led Buck Street Market in the lead up to its official opening in March.

Aimed at conscious consumers Buck Street Market will house a total of over 80 food and retail brands, all committed to sustainable practices and processes, setting a new standard for eating, drinking and shopping in London.  LabTech’s commitment to sustainability at Buck Street Market includes the use of 88 recycled shipping containers to house the market, recycling points set throughout the destination, zero-plastic on-site, and composting food waste from the food and beverage traders to generate energy that will be fed back into the power grid to produce electricity.

  • Award-winning* ‘Instagram chef’ and author of four bestselling cookbooks for his one-pound meals’, Miguel Barclay is set to open his first UK bricks and mortar site at Buck Street Market. Recognised for his ‘no-nonsense’ approach to cooking, Barclay’s latest offering of affordable New York Style pizza will be made fresh daily and on-site. The unit will span 150 sq ft.

  • One of Ireland’s youngest celebrity chefs, 28-year-old Adrian Martin, will open his first solo venture: Wildflower Restaurant, an intimate fine-dining concept at Buck Street Market. Housed in a converted 603 sq ft container, the restaurant will offer 30 covers. Adrian’s set menus will be determined by the seasons, and driven by a passion for sustainably sourced, local produce.

  • Glass Coffee, founded by Carlo Carrieri, will open its first radically transparent, technology-driven coffee shop that shows each product story by informing customers about the ingredients and farmers in each purchase. With a transparent business model in place, Glass Coffee has carefully selected suppliers who are committed to ethical and sustainable practices. The brand will take 74 sq ft of space on the top level of Buck Street Market.

The launch of Buck Street Market will be followed by the opening of Hawley Wharf Camden; a 580,000 sq ft mixed-scheme development due to open later in 2020. Hawley Wharf will deliver a unique Camden-style ecosystem for visitors and workers to enjoy. The canal-side mixed-use development will provide 150 shops, over 60 places to eat, 195 apartments and 50,000 sq ft of co-working space.

LabTech acted on behalf of Buck Street Market and Miguel Barclay, Wildflower and Glass Coffee represented themselves.
